Solid Tech Company

- Strong and respected senior management team
- Incredibly intelligent coworkers some of which are leaders in their fields

Cons- Still a bit of a start up mentality even as it grows to be over $1B company
- Lot of new hires leading to a new v old guard separation in talent

Advice to Senior Management- Focus on prioritization of key company objectives
- Establish the infrastructure to onboard new resources effectively during current growth

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
